Decibel Geek Podcast

A rock & metal music discussion show that takes an in-depth view on such earth-shattering topics as the level of sphincter pain generated by Nickelback's discography and debating what lives under Bret Michaels wig. We also occasionally interview some music-y folks you may have heard of. Yes, we really did just end that sentence with a preposition. That's how rock and roll we are.
